New Clerk for Worth Township
After the death of longtime Clerk Bud Gavin, the Worth Township Board appointed a replacement.
On July 26 the Worth Township Board unanimously appointed Trustee Roger Benson to the position of Worth Township Clerk, according to a news release.
Benson will fill out the remainder of the late Thomas ‘Bud’ Gavin’s term. Gavin died July 7 following a long career as Worth Township clerk and as a trustee.
Benson was elected as a trustee in 1997 and during that time has chaired the Building and Grounds Committee, the release read.
Replacing Benson as a trustee will be Marainne Viverito-Chmela. The 14-year resident of Oak Lawn has been an aide to U.S. Congressman Dan Lipinski.
